'I always liked the idea of yoga. I'd done a beginners course at Triyoga and the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Maida Vale but once the course was over I struggled to find the motivation to go back. When Komal told me she'd trained as a yoga instructor I told her I wanted lessons. She was my teacher from September 2010 - until I moved to Dubai at the end of December 2011. In the beginning I found the classes quite difficult, but she assured me that with time (and practice) I would get there. She was right! She has a gentle manner of teaching and is always very encouraging. She will push you, but not beyond your capabilities, and she can adapt any asana to make it easier (or harder). I've just found a yoga teacher in Dubai but he has a very tough act to follow!' -
"My sessions are of immense value. Since I started, I feel mentally and spiritually more in balance; closer to my true nature - I am now taking the first steps to what I hope is a life long journey of mental and spiritual understanding. Physically, my core body strength and flexibility is improving through the postures. Mentally I am better equipped to handle the stress and tribulations of life and the experiences that befall on us. Komal, as a teacher, brings passion and commitment that is inspiring and encourages oneself to improve, even when particular postures, such as the ‘crow’, seem overwhelming! The combination of mantras, asanas and Vedic philosophy, make the class unique and spiritually worthwhile. Long may they continue!"

"We have always received such positive feedback from our members about Komal's classes. Komal is not only a great Yoga instructor but she is friendly and approachable, always on time to her classes and is always willing to help with cover when she can - even if it is last minute. Komal would be an asset to any Group Exercise Team".

"When I decided to try the yoga class here, I was skeptical that I would be able to relax in a 'work environment'. The class exceeded my expectations & I forgot that I was in a meeting room at M&S almost instantaneously. Komal is a very inspiring & attentive yoga teacher and she always makes the focus of the class different each class. It's a great de-stresser and sets me up for the week."

"I believe Komal has a very unique talent, and that is to connect with the person and/or persons within a group.
To work with that person at their level and to encourage and support their efforts in the art of Yoga.
With her attention to detail, posture, breathing, coupled with her love of Yoga and a desire to share her knowledge, she makes a formidable teacher.
Her use of chanting, asanas and notes of wisdom, give her classes a marked point of difference to other classes I attend. If you have reason to read this testimonial, you have a chance for your life path to cross with that of Komal's. Recognize good luck when it comes your way.
Use this as an opportunity. Spend some time with one of the best yoga teachers I've had the pleasure to meet".

Our yoga lessons at Marks & Spencer, help me to stay calm & focused which adds to my general wellbeing. I am not very flexible & although I cannot do all the postures (asanas) this does not matter as Komal always makes it very clear that the aim of the class is to attempt what you can (safely) & stretch yourself a little more each week. I always feel good after the sessions, more toned & sleep very well that night!
